Planning, Budgeting, Acquisition & Management of Capital Assets Capital programming is an integrated process within an agency for planning, budgeting, procurement and management of the agencys portfolio of capital assets to achieve agency strategic goals and objectives with the lowest life-cycle cost and least risk. OMB Circular A-11 Cynthia Vallina Office of Management & Budget
And in plain English WE... have a finite amount of money must focus on agency mission, strategic goals & results need to make strategic and smart decisions about fiscal investments and ensure life cycle costing in order to get the biggest bang for the buck then we deliver on our commitment
Capital Programming is... Good acquisition planning & execution Four (4) phases -- Planning mapping your trip $ Budgeting financing your trip Procurement requiring the level of performance you need Management-in-use evaluating where you are...
Cut to the Chase OMB Circular A-11, Preparation and $ubmi$$ion of Budget E$timate$ –Part 2 -- Budget Requests Section 31.2 Environmental Management Section 55 Energy and Transportation Efficiency Management –Part 7 -- Planning, Budgeting & Acqui$ition of Capital A$$et$ Budget Exhibit 300, Capital Asset Plan & Justification Business Case The Capital Programming Guide
Environmental Management Federal agencies should develop and implement environmental management systems in order to integrate environmental accountability into agency day-to-day decision-making and long term processes, across all agency missions, activities and functions.
Energy and Transportation Efficiency Management Investments in better building design and construction typically return dividends (such as reduced operations and maintenance costs) that will save money over the life of the building, above and beyond any up front costs incurred to design and implement them…Agencies are encouraged to incorporate Energy Star or LEED building standards into up front design concepts for new construction and/or building renovations.
Life Cycle Cost Analysis What to consider – Environmental factors *global warming*acidification *Eutrophication*fossil fuel depletion *indoor air quality*habitat alteration *water intake*criteria air pollutants *human health*smog *ozone depletion*ecological toxicity.
Planning Planning mapping your trip Ensure that Environment/Energy are represented on the Integrated Project Team (IPT)! –multi-disciplinary & multi-functional project management, engineering, environment, budgeting/financial management, legal, operations & use, contracting, maintenance/logistics... –cradle-to-grave –project performance measures=IPT performance metrics Link metrics to sustainability and program performance Assess baseline & identify the performance gaps Detail the functional requirements
More planning... Evaluate the alternatives -- –answer the 3 pesky questions will the investment support core or priority functions? can another agency or private entity perform the function? have business processes been reengineered to optimize performance and efficiency? Select the best investment –is it available in the market place? –is it affordable? –is it feasible? Analyze benefits, costs, risks & returns –develop risk-adjusted cost, schedule and performance goals for project and/or segment
No, youre not done planning yet... Do market research Assess risk & develop plans to mitigate or manage Develop an acquisition strategy –phases? modules? useful segments? –single or multiple contractors? –in house, out house or both? –system or services? –competition? –type of contract? financial incentives?
Management-in-Use Management-in-Use evaluating the results of your investments Cyclical Operational Analyses –is the investment meeting project objectives & lifecycle cost, schedule & performance goals Operation & Maintenance Plan –scheduled preventative maintenance –predictable corrective maintenance Post-implementation Review –diagnostic of the agencys capital planning process Asset Disposal Plan –removal, replacement, redeployment, scrap
Capital Asset Plan (300) Capital Asset Plan (300) The Business Case Provide Justification for the investment Demonstrate Alternatives Analysis and Risk Management Develop and Defend Program Management Provide Appropriate Acquisition Strategy -- Use Appropriations First if Available -- Explore Alternative Financing and other tools available
The Business Case (300) Cost, Schedule, and Performance Goals A. Description of performance-based management system B. Original baseline (OMB-approved at project outset) C. Current baseline (applicable only if OMB approved the changes) D. Actual Performance and Variance from OMB- approved baseline (Original or Current) E. Corrective Actions
In a Nutshell - From the IPT to the President Project Manager and IPT document the business case and acquisition strategy for the planned investment – the Capital Asset Plan Agency Executive Review Board approves or rejects the investment -- if approved: –the project is available for submission as part of the agencys capital portfolio for the budget Agency prepares & submits budget documents OMB reviews the budget request –consistent with mission? strategic goals? sound project & acquisition planning & management? Administration priorities?
... and back OMB passes back to the agency its budget recommendations Final Federal budget compiled and sent to the Hill Appropriations return the budget back to the IPT for execution Agency then uses capital programming process to track costs, schedule, performance goals and measures, AND monitors actual performance against project plan
Hows it going? Capital programming is leading the way we fund projects Executive Review Committees for investment portfolios and IPTs are increasingly common Agencies are at different levels of implementation Analyses -- performance gap, alternatives, benefit/cost – still lacking Project rebaselining too frequent -- not managing to cost, schedule & performance parameters Acquisition planning/procurement not fully integrated
So, whats next? Integrate sustainability principles into A-11 Emphasize Agency Capital Plans where only good investments are funded Develop & implement performance-based acquisition management system functional requirements Continue automating and integrating capital decision-making and budget reporting for all agencies
